At one of the workshops I attended this past week at Bosler Memorial Library, the presenter, Kim Briggs (author of And Then He and Starr Fall), gave me some information about flash fiction. I did not know very much about the genre, but she said that it can be good exposure for an author if his/her story gets published.
To this end, I have decided to pen a flash fiction piece. At the very least, creating the story will help me hone my writing and editing skills.
Since I am new to the genre, I decided to look up what makes a good flash fiction story as well as to read other author’s narratives before I begin writing. Below is some information about flash fiction which I found online. I hope you find it helpful and that you too will be inspired to try something new.
